Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knowledge of cubic right angle weave is helpful.
  • Wire work tools needed. Like pliers round nose and chain nose.
  • If you haven't made C.R.A.Weave before I recommend starting with a larger bead. Just to get the hang of it, then downsize.
  • This is a beginner project, but it is small in size that is what makes it more challenging.

Pattern Description:

Hello bead friends,

This cute dainty earring is light weight and fun.

With this project you will learn how to make a beaded bead. Which you can use over and over again for making bracelets, and necklaces too; as well as basic wirework findings. (4 total- Earring hook, bale, jump ring and eye link.)

Making your OWN findings not only saves money, it allows for a total CUSTOM finish for your beaded jewelry.

Many different beads can be used to substitute and customize it to your liking. You can make the bead bigger too. Why not make a pendant to match the earrings while your at it? It is a great stash buster for orphaned beads.

A wonderful project for a gift for Mothers day, birthday or any occasion.

All my projects are tested and precisely measured to reduce waste and frustration. All patterns come with high definition clear colour photos and step by step instructions. That are numbered for clarity.

I hope you give it a try!
Abigail
